It surprises me how these ribs get there bows so high out of the water when there are almost no waves. In niels pic it looks as though the wave height is little more than about 300mm. Do your boats really handle that badly or are you just playing?

Erk, how can you see where you are heading like that?! Do you have a camera on the bow or something?

Look's like someone needs to play with the trim!!

Hey Niels, whereabouts is hoorn? I've heard of it but i cant combine it with water somehow... braindead i guess... is it in Friesland? or where?

I wish you good luck in the summer with all the Germans in their big fat Motorboats! One way to make them scared is probably the manouvre of fast acceleration as the pics show! Ahhh, i can just imagine it "Verdammte Ar****ch! " hehe

Hoorn.......

......... is one of the nicest places I have visited in Holland . Went there on me dads boat (moonraker 36) in 1990. Two great weeks cruising the iselmere (?) with a north sea crossing at each end.

Only a couple of meters deep and some of the biggest waves you can ever wish to meet!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

Martin

Ive never been to hoorn, but have done some sailing back in the mid 90's around the Afsluitdijk and East side of the ijsselmeer and i have sailed up to 3 of the islands with my daddy....

It was kindoff an holiday.. but sailing is to slow for me.. everything takes to long, is to quiet and you cant really get anywhere instantly without to much hassle of navigating difficult areas (unlike a RIB!)

I've been sailing in that area too, as a kid. We had a week from Monickendam (sp) and called into Hoorn. Nice place.
